perhaps some people like it that way!
I seem to have the opposite problem. The back rest is too close to the front edge of the seat to be able to sit down comfortably. I can stand astride the seat (which I find uncomfortable, hence the question) and brace against the back rest but when I sit down I am too close to the wheel.
I wondered whether to move the whole seat back to give sitting room but then I might not be able to stand astride nor have the back brace.
It seems I can either be comfortable standing or sitting but not both!
